BORGES, Eduardo da Rosa; AB'SABER, Alexandre Muxfeldt  and  BARBAS, Carmen Sílvia Valente. Pulmonary hemorrhage syndromes. J. bras. pneumol. [online]. 2005, vol.31, suppl.1, pp.s36-s43. ISSN 1806-3756.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1806-37132005000700010.

Pulmonary hemorrhage syndromes are characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates, decreased serum levels of hemoglobin, and hypoxemia. The causes of pulmonary hemorrhage include: infections, vasculitis, coagulopathies and collagen diseases. The therapy consists of treating the underlying disease and providing ventilatory support. In some cases, performing plasmapheresis can be beneficial.

Keywords : Hemorrhage; Infection; Vasculitis; Blood coagulation disorders; Collagen diseases.
